(special thanks to Bob Webb for the following info) Edmund Webb became one of the first doctors and one of the first intendants (similar to current mayors) in Anderson. By 1839, he had moved his family into town.
From the 1928 book Traditions and History of Anderson County, by Louise Ayer Vandiver: "A very early hotel stood on the lot now occupied by the G. F. Tolly residence
from the first owner, Dr. Edmund Webb purchased the place, and a part of the present house was erected by him. There his little daughter, Julia, was born. The little girl lived to see the village of her birth grow into a flourishing city. She was the late Mrs. J. W. Daniels."
Julia earned a college diploma in 1857 from Johnson Female University which later became Anderson College and then Anderson University. From a Feb 1943 edition of The Anderson Daily Mail: "Historic Pin Returned to College; Mary Catherine McGill, who is a freshman in Anderson College, is shown fastening a Johnson University pin on Dr. Annie D. Denmark. The pin was given to Anderson College by the late Mrs. Julia Webb von Hasseln and belonged to her aunt, Julia D. Webb who became Mrs. Daniels. The pin is inscribed, Johnson University, 1857.' On the back appears the name J. D. Webb.'"
Julia Delilah Webb first married Joseph Carpenter. He died 08 Apr 1874 when he was only 30 years old. From his obituary which appeared in the 9 Apr 1874 issue of The Anderson Intelligencer: "The grave has just closed over the mortal remains of Mr. Joseph W. Carpenter, an estimable and honorable young man, whose days of anguish and suffering were ended at the residence of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Martha Webb, in this town on Monday evening last. Mr. Carpenter has been suffering from pulmonary disease for several years and for the space of many months has lingered between life and death where the brittle thread of existence seemed almost severed. His case excited the sympathies of the entire community, while his patient resignation and cheerful acquiescence, mingled with a trusting, unshaken faith in the Saviour of mankind, was the highest admiration from every one who came into his sick chamber. Mr. Carpenter was buried at the Baptist Church in this town on Tuesday afternoon. The religious services were conducted by Rev. L. M. Ayer and Rev. W. W. Mood, whose truthful and touching references to the sad event were most impressive upon the large audience assembled in respect to the deceased."
On 27 Oct 1881, Julia married Capt. John W. Daniels in a double ceremony in which her namesake and niece, Julia Rebecca Webb married John Henry von Hasseln. Julia Rebecca Webb was the first child born to Thomas Jefferson Webb and his wife, Elizabeth Frances
In a 27 Oct 1930 letter to her nephew (Dr. Robert William Webb), Julia Rebecca (Webb) von Hasseln described her wedding day: "Writing Oct 27th recalls to my mind an outstanding event in my life, naturally bringing memories joyous, sad and humorous. This is the anniversary of my wedding (in one way it seems a thousand years ago). The weather was perfect; it was a double marriage Aunt Do & Capt Daniels with us same ceremony, high noon marriage and a big dinner long table, roast pig at one end a big gobbler at the other and the usual good things of that remote period; good cheer pervading the entire house holds the two Julias trying their rings and your father always alert, behind the scenes loading up a good supply of fruits, nuts, raisins, etc. to be hid away in his trunk, for his own personal use in the future it was funny then the departure in carriages to the old freight depot (the only one) where we caught the train for a trip to Atlanta." [note: the nieces' and nephew's nickname for their Aunt Julia was "Aunt Do," apparently a carryover from when the first of them were young and pronounced "Julia," more like "Do." It stuck.]
John W. Daniels was born 26 Aug 1833, and he died 17 May 1901 in Anderson. He and Julia had one child, Martha Frances "Mop" Daniels. Mop was born 26 Feb 1883, she and died 28 Sep 1890 when she was only 7 years old. Capt. Daniels served as Clerk of the Court in Anderson County for 16 years following Elijah Webb's death in 1865. Elijah was one of Dr. Edmund Webb's younger half brothers, and he had served as Clerk of the Court for almost 30 years prior to his death.
In the diary kept by Micajah Adolphus Clark when he returned to Anderson (his birthplace) to visit in July 1857, several references were made to Dr. Edmund Webb and his family. Micajah Adolphus Clark was then living in Attala County, Mississippi. His mother, Frances Webb Clark, was Dr. Edmund Webb's younger half sister. Portions of that diary were transcribed and published in the Jan 1953 edition of The South Carolina Historical
From that publication: "I went up with cousin T. J. Webb to his Fathers Dr. Edmond Webbs, who lives in a large Brick House on main street up stairs. His family consisted of his wife (Aunt Martha) T. J. Webb and his wife Elizabeth E. Warren Webb and grown Daughter Julia. T. Jeff. is a steady business man, doing well. Julia is a beautiful and highly accomplished Girl. I spent the night very pleasantly with them."
And, later in that diary: "Took supper at Dr. Edmond Webb, after which I took cousin Julia Webb out to the concert in the Show Hall given by the Rothchilds, Jones & Co., they had 6 violinist and a piano performed very well. While it was going on, it commenced raining very hard. I got perfectly wet going back, but kept Cousin Julia dry. Stayed with the Dr that night. I liked uncle Dr Edmond's company very much he is one of the best read men I have met with in a long time, on almost any subject you mention."
Dr. Edmund Webb died in Anderson on 01 Nov 1864. Martha Ann Emerson, died there on 13 May 1878. Their graves were in the First Baptist Church cemetery in Anderson until 1903 when their daughter, Julia, had their remains moved to a large family plot she had purchased in the Old Silver Brook cemetery when her husband, Capt. Daniels, died in 1901. She had a large stone monument erected in memory of her parents and to mark that family plot. Julia Delilah (Webb) Carpenter Daniels died 13 Apr 1926 and was buried in that family plot beside her second husband's grave and near the graves of her parents' and those of several other members of her extended family.
